The Making Of Deirdre
Hi Guys this is the making of Deirdre, if you are looking at this it may be that you are interested in my Mannequin's. It may be that you have seen a picture somewhere or seen one of my mannequins in the flesh or it may just be that you know me and want to check up on what I am doing.
During the creative process I have tried to post photos periodically, showing, hopefully, my thought processes of building and decorating a mannequin. There is no plan to any of my mannequins they just evolve organically. It may be that I have a particular piece of hardware I want to use or even a particular technique I want to incorporate.
My mannequin bases are all made from scratch using time tested methods of papier-mâché and plaster bandage.
The first stage of composition - the making of the mould.
Removing the papier-mâché from the mould.
First plaster bandage covering.
First coat of paint
Embellishment time, now the fun starts
Me making her tanks
Love the look of these photos
